THE MUSIC

Realized, not created strictly with themes, secretly afar where she spins her dreams: The Somewhere Stranger soundtrack is a 34-song rock-opera trilogy split into three volumes released in 2021. Volume 1 begins the tale in a mysterious carnival dripping with intrigue and powered by riff-heavy guitar leads. Volume 2 explores the realms of good versus evil, war and peace, and the forces that drive them. Volume 3 is an existential journey through inner-struggle, redemption and metamorphosis with a phantasmal touch of the supernatural.


THE BAND

At the wheel, but am not steering, nearing never, never nearing… Formed along the Oregon coast in 2007, Somewhere Stranger, one of the Pacific Northwest's most prodigious musical talents, is best known for composing theatrical rock music inspired by the great British and American classic rock bands of the 1960's & 1970's. Somewhere Stranger's music has a mysterious, and often eerie quality that creates powerful moods and fantastical soundscapes much to the delight of guitar-driven rock aficionados of all ages.

  2. Twilight Carousel 04:38 Lyrics
    Hidden deep in the misty hills
    Beyond the valley where time stood still
    Among the shadows out of sight
    Only emerging on a scarlet night
    Here they say, sits the Twilight Carousel

    The Twilight Carousel

    The time is near, but just for tonight
    Come with me on a midnight ride
    The moon is full and the sky glows red
    Our chariot appears in the fog up ahead
    Escape from the Earth on the heaven's wind
    A trip to reveal what lies within
    A night to remember I guarantee
    Together we'll travel, just you and me

    A fairy-tale once made mention
    Of a far off place in a secret dimension
    The hallowed grounds of angels and light
    The resting place of evil and spite
    There they say flies the Twilight Carousel

    The Twilight Carousel

    The time is near, but just for tonight
    Come with me on a midnight ride
    The moon is full and the sky glows red
    Our chariot appears in the fog up ahead
    Escape from the Earth on the heaven's wind
    A trip to reveal what lies within
    A night to remember I guarantee
    Together we'll travel, just you and me

    The sands of time pass quickly by
    Like shooting stars across the sky
    Don't be afraid to take a chance
    Existence is merely a passing glance

    Frantically unfolds the night
    The sun escapes the stars ignite
    Destiny has found us here
    Relax your mind let go your fear

    (The Twilight Carousel)
    (The Twilight Carousel)
    (The Twilight Carousel)

    The time is near, but just for tonight
    Come with me on a midnight ride
    The moon is full and the sky glows red
    Our chariot appears in the fog up ahead
    Escape from the Earth on the heaven's wind
    A trip to reveal what lies within
    A night to remember I guarantee
    Together we'll travel, just you and me

  3. Being for the Benefit of Mr. Kite! 03:17 Lyrics
    For the benefit of Mr. Kite
    There will be a show tonight on trampoline
    The Hendersons will all be there
    Late of Pablo Fanques Fair, what a scene
    Over men and horses, hoops and garters
    Lastly through a hogshead of real fire
    In this way Mr. K. will challenge the world!

    The celebrated Mr. K
    Performs his feat on Saturday at Bishopsgate
    The Hendersons will dance and sing
    As Mr. Kite flies through the ring. Don't be late!
    Messrs. K. and H. assure the public
    Their production will be second to none
    And of course Henry the Horse dances the waltz!

    The band begins at ten to six
    When Mr. K. performs his tricks without a sound
    And Mr. H. will demonstrate
    Ten somersets he'll undertake on solid ground
    Having been some days in preparation
    A splendid time is guaranteed for all
    And tonight Mr. Kite is topping the bill!

    (John Lennon / Paul McCartney)

  4. Wing Walking Sky Writers 05:01 Lyrics
    Now stare to the heavens and you're likely to see
    Directly up above us the world's first flying machines
    The Wing Walking Sky Writers will dazzle you now
    With a feat of no equal, flying high through the sky
    Writing poems in the clouds

    On this new flying machine unlike man had ever seen
    Acrobats paint the sky and gracefully walk the wing
    Mechanical birds fly and carry them up so high
    The Wing Walking Sky Writers made us feel alive inside
    A miracle to behold and the audience agrees
    As it happened this day: fourteenth of February, eighteen-forty-three

    The world never seemed closer than from miles above
    Where the Wing Walking Sky Writers spread their message of love
    The risks seem great and the rewards look thin
    But any one of us would gladly trade places with them
    To fly among the heavens... To feel them again!

    Amazement from above in the universe today
    What a tremendous performance an atmospheric display
    The spectators were stunned by the idea of flight
    Never before had anyone flown before the show tonight
    A miracle to behold and the audience agrees
    As it happened this day: the fourteenth of February, eighteen-forty-three

    The world never seemed closer than from miles above
    Where the Wing Walking Sky Writers spread their message of love
    The risks seem great and the rewards look thin
    But any one of us would gladly trade places with them
    To fly among the heavens... To feel them again!

    It’s poetry in motion as they play before our eyes
    Every man, woman, and child fully obsessed with the sight
    But something seems wrong, is everything all right?
    One false step, fifty years before the Wrights
    Could bring an end to the magic that we feel here tonight!

    (On this new flying machine unlike man had ever seen)
    (Acrobats paint the sky and gracefully walk the wing)

    A miracle to behold and the audience agrees
    As it happened this day: fourteenth of February, eighteen-forty-three

    The world never seemed closer than from miles above
    Where the Wing Walking Sky Writers spread their message of love
    The risks seem great and the rewards look thin
    But any one of us would gladly trade places with them
    To fly among the heavens... To feel them again!

  5. Voodoo Angel 04:51 Lyrics
    It frightens and scares as it captures your stare
    An ancient treasure that begs you'll come near
    It awakens your interest with an echo of a prayer

    Experience the magic that comes from within
    Feel her power grow as the barrier wears thin
    Fascinate and captivate, trick them and persuade
    Now that your thoughts are one, all she has to do is wait!

    For a while you resist, but finally submit
    Help her find freedom by giving the key a twist
    Remove the lock to this prison with flick of the wrist

    Help an old forgotten soul see the world again
    It's been many years, but at last she found a friend
    Someone's reached out for the lock, and now it's time to leave
    What was dark now sees the light; the Voodoo Angel has been set free!

  6. The Remedy 03:51 Lyrics
    I always wore a smile
    Now I feel hollow
    Sitting with your shadow

    I try in vain to escape the memories
    Instead you stay eclipsed away within my mind
    Desperately I need to find the remedy
    For though I fight, every night, I dream of you
    For though I fight, every night, I dream of you

    We traveled through the thick and thin then you began to slip away
    Farther and farther until you finally fell in to fiction
    Yet still I remember

    Time remains idle
    If what becomes tomorrow
    Just dwells in the past

    I try in vain to escape the memories
    Instead you stay eclipsed away within my mind
    Desperately I need to find the remedy
    For though I fight, every night, I dream of you
    For though I fight, every night, I dream of you

    For though I fight, every night, I dream of you

  7. Bizarre Guitar 06:50 Lyrics
    Just let your thoughts go
    Just let your thoughts go
    Just let your thoughts go
    Focus your eyes down here
    To the ring over there
    Now kindly please sit down
    While I introduce my friend

    (Bizarre Guitar)
    (Bizarre Guitar)

    That instrument just sat there simply void of life
    Not at all amused by the big top's bright spotlight
    Borrowed long ago from an ancient place
    It clearly wasn't here to make friends
    But when the Ringmaster called out
    That guitar suddenly stood on end

    It was a site to marvel
    So intricately carved
    Embellished with symbols
    Foreign to my eye by far

    It tuned its strings taking care with every note
    Wasting no time it began to compose

    (Bizarre Guitar, Bizarre Guitar)
    (Bizarre Guitar, Bizarre Guitar)

    Amazing melodies, every string sang
    And with every note the music got more insane
    Not always being eager to please
    It clearly had a mind of its own
    Not even the Ringmaster's call
    Could control its twisted tone

    The crowd began to flee
    Their senses overthrown
    By the guitar's magic
    And its enchanted drone
    The feeling of course was simply one of a kind
    Even those resilient quickly lost their minds

    (Bizarre Guitar, Bizarre Guitar)
    (Bizarre Guitar, Bizarre Guitar)

    Minutes flew by for hours it seemed
    But finally that guitar seemed to lose its steam
    The music had come to a stop
    And the crowd had all calmed down
    Then their applause then erupted out!
    Give us more of that haunting sound!

    But deep inside they were glad it ceased
    Thankful for its release
    That music nearly did them in
    Brought them all down to their knees

    No, this wasn’t its true calling and it wasn't here to make friends
    Oh no, look out! It's at it again!

  8. Chairs and Whips 06:26 Lyrics
    Long ago, or so they tell
    Violent creatures ruled the Earth for ages
    But in ring two, I happen to view
    Three of them locked in three great cages

    Enter the tamer so valiant and proud!
    Surely he'll win over the hearts of the crowd!
    With chairs, whips, and the might of his wit
    He intends to win, to make them submit

    The cages they fly wide open and the beasts they have been set free
    They don't care very much for glory but they sure love the taste of fresh meat

    Chairs and whips might slow them down
    But the mission they still believe in
    For once in a while when the time is right
    There’s a chance that they might take a bite

    Is it right to cage a living thing?
    Is it wrong to allow the suffering?

    All fleeting thoughts at a time like this when the creatures crave for feeding
    Slam the door and lock it tight before they start succeeding

    The tamer’s in season as we all can tell
    Notice how the beasts slowly circle their prey
    Despite the odds and being outnumbered
    The master somehow keeps them away

    But all is not well as we're starting to tell
    Observe the tamer beginning to yell
    We can see that he's losing his cool
    Providing them with nothing but fuel

    The action never stops, no not ever, and the creatures just focus right in
    The tamer stands tall, still courageous, but aware of the plan if they win

    Chairs and whips might slow them down
    But the mission they still believe in
    For once in a while when the time is right
    There’s a chance that they might take a bite

    Is it right to cage a living thing?
    Is it wrong to allow the suffering?

    All fleeting thoughts at a time like this when the creatures crave for feeding
    Slam the door and lock it tight before they start succeeding

    In the end victory belonged
    To the winning team who defeated its foe
    Down in ring two, I happen to view
    All three back in their three great cages

    Admire the tamer, so valiant and proud!
    Standing ovations and cheers from the crowd!
    With confidence he bows and he waves
    Knowing he was only an inch from the grave

    Now they're back in the dungeon and the beasts are waiting
    With nothing at all but time on their minds
    There they grow more and more certain of the fact
    That they'll catch him, and eat him, next time

    Chairs and whips might slow them down
    But the mission they still believe in
    For once in a while when the time is right
    There’s a chance that they might take a bite

    Is it right to cage a living thing?
    Is it wrong to allow the suffering?

    All fleeting thoughts at a time like this when the creatures crave for feeding
    Slam the door and lock it tight before they start succeeding

  10. Dreaming (My Whole Life) 04:35 Lyrics
    As I sit upon the ground
    Surrounded by the sounds
    I find myself drifting
    Drifting somewhere far away from here

    All the yelling and the fear
    Make me want to disappear
    So I slowly drift away
    Yet I find that I cannot leave this place

    Through the brilliance of the day and silence of the dark
    I wonder away, but there's simply just no other way

    I've been dreaming my whole life for a chance at pure delight
    So that I can spread my wings and fly
    I've been dreaming my whole life for a world where I'm set free
    For a place to finally be me

    I can almost feel it now
    That which eluded me for years
    The wish that I've begged for
    That I've prayed for time and time again

    The space around me spins
    As I drift away and grin
    So I slowly beg again
    But there's no one listening today

    While I ponder this dismay and decide to make my move
    Sometimes I regret that there's simply just no other way

    Err on the cautious side, I keep a safe distance
    Unfortunately for me, they've noticed my resistance
    Long ago I took that road and now I'm scared to run
    But I can see up in front of me, reality's returned

    As I sit upon the ground
    Seeking answers in the sounds
    I find myself smiling
    Smiling somewhere far away from here

    Beside my hopes and dreams
    Hangs a flier for the show
    And so here I go again
    Disappearing as the sun leaves town

    I've tried to forget, but there's simply just no other way

    I've been dreaming my whole life for a chance at pure delight
    So that I can spread my wings and fly
    I've been dreaming my whole life for a show like Mr. Kite's
    And tonight the carnival's in town

    I've been dreaming my whole life for the sound of happiness
    And tonight I might finally see my wish come true

  11. The Ride Never Stops 04:29 Lyrics
    Just step right up! Come one and come all!
    Time isn't patient as I'm sure you recall
    So buckle up your belts, one minute and we're set
    This ride will take you just where you want to get

    When the wheels start rollin' there's no turnin’ back
    The view will amaze you... I promise you that
    From high up above, or down far below
    You can't fight the pull so just let yourself go

    The ride never stops, it doesn't break down
    It never gives up, it doesn't touch ground
    As the hourglass spins our heads hear the sound
    When we think it's all over it turns us around

    The middle of nowhere sounds just fine to me
    So where ever we are it's not hard to agree
    For the ride never slows even though it would seem
    If it flies off the track the whole world goes free

    Through the journey's twists and the journey's curves
    Time doesn't care, it's just not concerned
    And if we ever stop and arrive at our ends
    That my friends is when the real show begins

    We flip and we fall, we spin and we stall
    Take a trip around, forget about it all
    I bet you've never been on a ride quite like this
    Your memory screams out but you still can't resist

    The ride never stops, it doesn't break down
    It never gives up, it doesn't touch ground
    As the hourglass spins our heads hear the sound
    When we think it's all over it turns us around

    The middle of nowhere sounds just fine to me
    So where ever we are it's not hard to agree
    For the ride never slows even though it would seem
    If it flies off the track the whole world goes free

    With a violent crash everything went wrong
    The drop down to Earth is long, long, long
    But now that we've arrived the desert welcomes our fall
    The sand will flow forever and the hourglass surrounds us all

  1. Shifting Sands 03:56 Lyrics
    Waking up in the strangest place
    A land of nothing, just sand and waste
    No one there to hold my hand
    A land of nothing, no time no trace

    All I remember was a giant crash
    And then silence, now here I am

    Shifting sands quickly flow
    Look out now here it goes
    Shifting sands let me roll
    Slide side-to-side inside my soul
    Wherever it is that you must go

    I might as well make the best of this place
    A land of nothing, just sand and waste
    I need to trust the invisible maze
    In a land of nothing, no reason, no trace

    Hidden, forbidden, but something is here
    They scream without sound, but I know they're near

    Shifting sands quickly flow
    Look out now here it goes
    Shifting sands let me roll
    Slide side-to-side inside my soul
    Wherever it is that you must go

    Wandering in sunset's light, the sand surrounds me but that's all right
    I don't know but it seems untrue, where this compass points me to
    But when I reach the other side I think I'll feel a sense of pride
    I still don't know what I'm here to do, but somehow still I'm makin' it through
    Fate alone rolled out the dice, fingers crossed don't fool me twice

    Shifting sands, slide me slow
    Carry me to the next plateau
    Shifting sands, let me roll
    Slide side to side inside my soul
    Wherever it is that you must go

    Take me there and help embrace
    The creeping feel of this crazy place

  2. Malevolent Morality 07:26 Lyrics
    A tired voice introducing himself to me
    Bringing news, tales of truth but how could it be?
    Simple messenger announcing the gods' decree
    Great scales tilt as they argue and disagree
    Some speak of honor, love, respect, and courtesy
    Others speak of fighting, violence, hate, and greed
    What will become of man? How will his story end?
    When will the plot unfold, and what'll we do until we're told?

    Antique rhetoric urgently interpreting fate
    They always say that there's never any time to waste
    The falling sky over-cooking you and me
    Imagined foes destroying everything that they see
    These fables they change us, and the world with which we live
    Through ages they follow us, where we go, and where we've been
    What will become of man? How will his story end?
    When will the plot unfold, and what'll we do until we're told?

    Enlightened souls have shown the way
    Now shadows distract and lead astray
    Life can't live, and love won't give
    As morality dims malevolence wins

    Standing ahead, the crossroads of life transgress
    Devils and angels finding themselves powerless
    Cursed to wait because the choice is ours to make
    Conflict ensues, push to shove and to give to gain
    Will Porcelain realize just what's at stake?
    Will malevolence spread, or morality retake?
    What will become of man? How will his story end?
    When will the plot unfold, and what'll we do until we're told?

    What will become of man? How will his story end?
    When will the plot unfold, and what'll we do until we're told?

    Enlightened souls have shown the way
    Now shadows distract and lead astray
    Life will grow and love will rain
    As morality blooms malevolence fades

  3. Walk With Me 04:45 Lyrics
    There's a shadow on my mind that I once feared
    Always it follows, but unto what end?
    Does it change in me who it is I am?

    Another year is passing, and it makes its peace
    Past, present, and future feel the same to me
    Distant but almost near, soundless, but still I hear

    Then you find me, and I finally feel real love again

    Walk with me, walk with me
    Let's take a journey through a picture on the wall
    Walk with me, walk with me
    Take my hand and we can travel to them all
    Walk with me, walk with me
    Let's take a journey through a picture on the wall
    Walk with me, walk with me
    Take my hand and we can travel to them all

    Now clouds they fill the sky, and thunder hurts my ears
    Crying rivers for us out of their happiness
    If we stop moving by will their tears run dry?

    The ocean sends its waves out to erode the day
    But why fight what I don't mind, I could sure use the time
    Love letters in the sand written to you by my hand

    Then you find me, and I finally feel real love again

    Walk with me, walk with me
    Let's take a journey through a picture on the wall
    Walk with me, walk with me
    Take my hand and we can travel to them all
    Walk with me, walk with me
    Let's take a journey through a picture on the wall
    Walk with me, walk with me
    Take my hand and we can travel to them all

    When will we find the time to make a trip and arrive in our lives?
    Once we're there, out of here, we can learn who we are one more time
    For you see I believe we will never ever be far apart
    Here or there, I don't care, you will still be everywhere in my heart

    We travel down a road, one that just appeared
    No one to greet us there, no they haven't in years
    Not even a little smile, not even a friendly kiss

    Flowers grow all around, faster than our eyes believe
    Everything else seems to slow, freezing right in its place
    I wish that I’d woken up, so I might see your face

    Then you find me, and I finally feel real love again

    Walk with me, walk with me

    Walk with me, walk with me
    Let's take a journey through a picture on the wall
    Walk with me, walk with me
    Take my hand and we can travel to them all
    Walk with me, walk with me
    Let's take a journey through a picture on the wall
    Walk with me, walk with me
    Take my hand and we can travel to them all

  4. Porcelain City 06:37 Lyrics
    Secluded utopia suited to please
    Surreal by nature, surrounded by streams
    People live lives with light loving eyes
    Loyal to all and their lord in the sky
    Porcelain City, protected and prized
    Society flourishes, families thrive
    Neighbors share stories and warm apple pie
    They greet you at birth, and they mourn when you die

    Wonderful weather never fails to please
    Out in the sun, and beneath all the trees
    Time floats along alluding to change
    But everything is tranquil, and the faces never age
    Nightfall creeps quickly, stars shine clear
    As one day must end another draws near
    Surrendered to dreams, drifting down stream
    Evils lurks deep as pure Porcelain sleeps

    The trouble with dreams is they're rarely what they seem...

    Moon light glows, the Sandman just left
    Yet some lay restless, quietly possessed
    Guided by evil, and giddy with greed
    Those who sought power conspire to deceive
    Tipping the balance, and scarring the skies
    Cloaking their deeds with politically correct lies
    Evil grows strong when allowed to by man
    But Porcelain lay sleeping, all according to plan

    Darkness is growing, a glass with no brim
    As the sun rises evil throws on his grin
    Disguised for the people to refract their concern
    Silently yearning for twilight's return
    Porcelain people live lies full of bliss
    Completely unaware that this evil exists
    Porcelain City please awake with a kiss
    Your haven is sleeping in evil's abyss

    The trouble with dreams is they're rarely what they seem...

    Will they remember where they came from?
    Will they remember what they learned?
    Can they find their way home?
    Can they find their way home?
    Can they find their way home?

  5. S_P_A_C_E_S 05:33 Lyrics
    Realized, not created strictly with themes
    Secretly afar where she spins her dreams
    Follow the visions that haunt the girl
    Find asylum far beyond this world

    Spaces through which we fall
    Spaces which bind us all
    Spaces for which we've fought
    Spaces beside our thoughts

    Forward he fights all throughout the night
    Risking his life for his people's rights
    Never quite sure of what lurks in the shade
    Destiny lies on the edge of a blade

    Spaces which bind us all
    Spaces through which we fall
    Spaces beside our thoughts
    Spaces for which we've fought

    These kindred souls survived the black hole
    Wearing out the days confined to their roles
    Waiting for a hero to conquer the fire
    Deliver the justice that they so desire

    Spaces between these words
    Spaces and how they're heard
    Spaces when shadows grow tall
    Spaces they follow us all

  6. Castles 02:38 Lyrics
    In the distance far from me, through the mountain's foggy air
    Towers an ancient castle, the Dark Lord's private lair
    He dwells throughout the years until the time is near
    To rain his evil down, and defeat our hearts with fear

    The power of these forces grows greater all the time

  7. The Battle 05:05 Lyrics
    Marching onward towards another dreary day
    The enemy's army just ahead, across the way
    Battle cries falling on my vacant ears
    While a fly-by-night king slowly disappears

    Forward soldiers!
    You must not stop
    Forward soldiers!
    'til the crown drops

    Another time, another place, somewhere far away
    Reoccurring in the twilight every waking day
    Memories of family linger in my head
    I pray to return home, if I don't end up…

    The Battle wages on, and many lives are claimed
    Our young and brave wounded, all in vain
    To a selfish king it's still just a game
    He remains resolute despite all the pain

    Forward soldiers!
    You must not stop
    Forward soldiers!
    'til the crown drops

    Another time, another place, somewhere far away
    Reoccurring in the twilight every waking day
    Memories of family linger in my head
    I pray to return home, if I don't end up…
    End up dead!

    To a selfish king it's still just a game
    He remains resolute despite all the pain

    What they saw doesn't matter at all
    What they thought wouldn't won’t the plot
    When they die won't open his eyes
    Because what they say never hits front page

    Why does it seem like the greedy gain amnesty
    While humanity becomes exceedingly unnecessary
    When will he see that his people are keen to the sleight of hand
    And won't tolerate their heroes dying needlessly in the sand.

    What they/you saw, doesn't matter at all
    What they/you thought, won’t change the plot
    When they/you die, won't open his eyes
    Because what they/you say, never hits front page

    Another time, another place, somewhere far away
    Reoccurring in the twilight every waking day
    Memories of family linger in my head
    I pray to return home, if I don't end up…

  9. Our Heroes Return 04:01 Lyrics
    In times of danger they answer the call
    Forever fighting to protect us all
    And now I wonder just when they'll arrive
    Slowly fades hope beneath these darkened skies

    Legendary heroes rise from the ash
    Return again from centuries past
    Right the wrongs which plague this land
    Uphold the honor found in man

    When no longer you see the surface
    Down deep inside find your purpose
    Lives depend on the fate that you forge
    Staring in the face of a timeless war

    Legendary heroes rise from the ash
    Return again from centuries past
    Right the wrongs which plague this land
    Uphold the honor found in man

    At long last our heroes appear
    Bringing us hope and soothing our fear
    The force of ages raining down on the shore
    Stop and listen, the enemy is no more!

    Legendary heroes rise from the ash
    Return again from centuries past
    Right the wrongs which plague this land
    Uphold the honor found in man

    Legendary heroes rise from the ash
    Return again from centuries past
    Right the wrongs which plague this land
    Uphold the honor found in man

  10. Time Does Pass 04:25 Lyrics
    The oceans shimmer beneath the moon
    And the birds have abandoned the sky
    Stars shine so brightly to show us the way
    A simple suggestion to do with as we may

    Been dancing with fate for such a long time
    It's easy to leave before you arrive
    Chosen for a role written in the sky
    Forever in concert by your side
    Honest emotions we conceal
    Why look at things as if they weren't real
    A shadow's breathe from me you steal
    Reminding me of how life should feel

    Every little thing is fine
    As we ramble through our lives
    Every little wish you cast
    Coming true as time does pass
    And time does pass

    Watch a star explode and feel secure
    Your dreams won't ever fade or wither
    Tomorrow is waiting, for you and for me
    Let's make our own door, and we'll share the key

    Been dancing with fate for such a long time
    It's easy to leave before you arrive
    Chosen for a role written in the sky
    Forever in concert by your side
    Honest emotions we conceal
    Why look at things as if they weren't real
    A shadow's breathe from me you steal
    Reminding me of how life should feel

    Every little thing is fine
    As we ramble through our lives
    Every little wish you cast
    Coming true as time does pass
    And time does pass
    Time does pass
    Time does pass

Track Details

  1. Eventide Stranger 05:56 Lyrics
    So you are wondering if I am the twilight man
    Don't be surprised to find yourself at my door dear old friend
    Eventide stranger I just might have to let you in

    Yet again you come over and request that I be home
    But it seems that I've vanished and you're dancing all alone
    It feels so real, and it is, more than you know

    The season is never ending with winter at noon
    Don't plan for a vacation even the churches lie in ruin
    When the world is sleeping the clocks don't stay true
    But whenever you need me you know just what to do
    Dream a little dream and let yourself go

    Remember me, I'm the story of a dream
    Slowly fading, out of your memory
    It's just destiny that you and I should finally meet
    Eventide stranger I see what you see

    Sunlight is shinin’ and the whole wide world hears the sound
    You sing out to my soul but only echoes fly around
    You try to scream but the volume keeps dropping down

    In spite of this bad weather you arrive on my shores
    They say that you are crazy and you're screaming out for more
    Eventide stranger, you need not wander anymore

    The season is never ending with winter at noon
    Don't plan for a vacation even the churches lie in ruin
    When the world is sleeping the clocks don't stay true
    But whenever you need me you know just what to do
    Dream a little dream and let yourself go

    Remember me, I'm the story of a dream
    Slowly fading, out of your memory
    It's just destiny that you and I should finally meet
    Eventide stranger I see what you see
    And I know what you know
    Of a good friend and a foe
    Of goodbye and hello
    Of paradise and sorrow
    Of a silhouette's shadow
    Of a broken heart crescendo
    Yes, I know what you know
    But what we know, well it ain't so

    Remember me, I'm the story of a dream
    Slowly fading, out of your memory
    It's just destiny that you and I should finally meet
    Eventide stranger I see what you see

  2. Nearing Never 03:49 Lyrics
    Nearing never, never nearing

    At the wheel but am not steering
    Nearing never, never nearing
    Beasts of burden, nymphs of flight
    Follow blindly through the night
    Spirits call and I am hearing
    Growing close, at me they're leering
    Ghosts and goblins in the shade
    Stare at me beyond the grave
    A world of dreams falling at my feet
    Including nightmares stuck on repeat
    Something's eerie in this land I'm fearing
    With interest peaked and wonder rearing
    Nearing never, never nearing

    The closer that I get the harder that it seems
    To find a line between here and my dreams

    Nearing never, never nearing

    The life I knew now disappearing
    Nearing never, never nearing
    I try to run, but it's far too late
    Behind me they have slammed the gate
    Surrounding me out in the clearing
    Hardly believing what I am hearing
    Send us your dreams, more good than bad
    Keep your nightmares, they make us mad!
    You may leave when you abide
    Chosen souls can walk on both sides
    I stay to help or so I'm appearing
    With interest peaked and wonder rearing
    Nearing never, never nearing

    The closer that I get the harder that it seems
    To find a line between here and my dreams

    Nearing never, never nearing
    Nearing never, never nearing
    Nearing never, never nearing

  3. Here Nor Far 03:58 Lyrics
    Free from the boundaries that held me in place
    Watching memories flash by before my face
    All those I've loved and all the times we had
    All that made me smile and that which drove me mad

    Arriving abruptly after ages of waiting
    Abiding accordingly arbitrarily complaining
    Attractive appearance abrading, decaying
    Always assuming adamantly portraying

    Falling throughout the air
    Falling to I know not where
    Falling beyond the stars
    Falling neither here nor far

    Onward I drop, but this trip has no end
    Cerebral it seems as my body descends
    What awaits below draws no closer with time
    I realize now something far more sublime

    Observing occurrences of oncoming death
    Overly obsessing optimistically depressed
    Obtained obsolescence ambitiously at best
    Officially offering one open request
    I plead for it to stop, and provide me with rest!

    Falling throughout the air
    Falling to I know not where
    Falling beyond the stars
    Falling neither here nor far
    Falling throughout the air
    Falling to I know not where
    Falling beyond the stars
    Falling neither here nor far

  4. The Ghosts Who Sing 03:53 Lyrics
    Caught in a game of hide-and-seek
    Never resting, lacking sleep
    Searching onward far and near
    Because at dawn they'll disappear
    Over my shoulder I see fate
    All that's left is to sit and wait
    Days of hope, nights of sorrow
    Pray I'm safe until tomorrow

    Transparently they float away
    My faith, my hope, my fear, my pain
    Melodic whisper my ears do ring
    Appear before me, the ghosts who sing

    You cover your ears, but still you hear
    The ghosts who sing
    You shut your eyes, but you cannot hide
    The ghosts who sing have haunted me
    What was once before now shall never be

    The spirits sing a menacing delight
    Harmonic madness through the night
    Notwithstanding the haunting tune
    Wrapped by sound in their cocoon
    Wishes, dreams, hopes, and tears
    Follow me throughout the years
    Days of hope, nights of sorrow
    Pray I'm safe until tomorrow

    Transparently they float away
    My faith, my hope, my fear, my pain
    Melodic whisper my ears do ring
    Appear before me the ghosts who sing

    You cover your ears, but still you hear
    The ghosts who sing
    You shut your eyes, but you cannot hide
    The ghosts who sing have haunted me
    What was once before now shall never be

  5. Numbed Equilibrium 04:56 Lyrics
    A broken man, abandoned plans, a soul without a home
    Wrong decisions, twisted fate, this life was not his own
    Pain, cries, anger, moans, gambles, trips, and broken bones
    Pride and anguish guide his hand, can the horsemen pardon him?

    Somehow things seem out of place
    Laws of balance turned to waste
    How can I rise with a heart of stone?
    "By the means you must", the wise man told

    Another chance, a different prayer, but bygones crowd this mind
    Lifeless days, violent nights, silencing the voice inside
    Wonder, torture, stepping stones, fear, doubt, the great unknown
    Pride and anguish guide his hand, can the horsemen pardon him?

    Now and then, dreams fall from hand
    Like the heavens far from man
    The past knew madness, what lies ahead?
    "Whatever you begin", the wise man said

    Oooooooh… All the way down
    Oooooooh… Round and round
    Oooooooh… Down to the ground
    Oooooooh… Turn it around

    Sometimes it all falls in place
    A dream come true restoring grace
    But can the future forgive the past?
    "Can you make it so?", the wise man asked

    Oooooooh… All the way down
    Oooooooh… Round and round
    Oooooooh… Down to the ground
    Oooooooh… Turn it around

    Sometimes things seem out of place
    Laws of balance turned to waste
    The past grew sadness, what lies ahead?
    "The world you create", the wise man said

    Oooooooh . . . All the way down
    Oooooooh . . . Round and round
    Oooooooh . . . Turn it around
    Fly!
    Fly Fly, fly, fly, fly...
    Goodbye

  6. Day Break 03:39 Lyrics
    Journey through the ups and downs to begin to understand
    All you know and what you’ve shown isn’t all there is
    Deep inside abides your mind to a siren’s song
    Peace of mind is absent there

    What was that? Did you hear their call?
    Echoing, in these castle walls
    Warning us not to trust the shade
    Stay away, and then I heard them say

    Sunrise burning out the shadows
    Curious staring out my window
    All I see is lightning and thunder
    Day break don’t make me wait any longer

    Journey through the ups and downs to begin to understand
    All you know and what you’ve shown isn’t all there is
    Deep inside abides your mind to a siren’s song
    Peace of mind is absent there

    Journey through the ups and downs to begin to understand
    All you know and what you’ve shown isn’t all there is
    Deep inside abides your mind to a siren’s song
    Peace of mind is absent there

  7. The Secrets of Life 03:26 Lyrics
    Rain pours down depriving of sleep
    Darkness surrounds, it slithers and sneaks
    Dreams drift and ghosts haunt the halls
    The answer is theirs, surrender to their call

    I plead for their leaving, but this night they persist
    Is this a dream, or much more? Too late to resist

    The secrets of life may be found from within
    Time grows restless for your trip to begin

    Answers to all as foretold by these dreams
    Messages obscure, definitions off beam
    No nothing at all is just quite what it seems
    As the melodies morph, the plot keeps its theme

    As conscious connects, I ponder these means
    If dreams were reality would they be what they seem?

    The secrets of life may be found from within
    Time grows restless for your trip to begin

    I plead for their leaving, but this night they persist
    Is this a dream, or much more? Too late to resist

    The secrets of life lay deep in our hearts
    Looking to others will lead you too far

  9. Tides Change 03:00 Lyrics
    Eons ago the river gained soul
    Eternal traveler without a home
    She will guide you, and show you the way
    Maybe I'll join you, or maybe I'll wait

    For the tides change, whenever she may
    The tides change, but tonight I remain

    A desolate city cries for aid
    And she can lead us there without delay
    The oceans lay still, and the current abstains
    The sirens sing, but their song is in vain

    The tides have changed, the moment's arrived
    I'm on my way, and she's by my side

  10. Reflections (From a Traveling Mind) 03:58 Lyrics
    Everyday can feel like a maze
    So tough we have to pretend
    But not me 'cause I hold freedom
    As my closest friend

    They taught me many things
    Most I try to forget
    Selling lies to children
    Only leads to their regret

    Now over they turn like pages in a book
    Memories made from the way that the world looks

    Reflections from a traveling mind
    The world is just a mirror, and you're still trying to hide
    (Where do you run to when you don't even know where you are)

    Reflections, the kind I hope to find
    Don't get lost in a fable, go live your life with pride
    (Don't let them stop you from becoming who it is you are)

    Up ahead I see a light
    A symbol from the past
    Somewhere I saw this sign before
    Ten thousand years behind the glass

    I only see the stars and the moon
    And that's good enough for me
    I don't implore the heavens
    For my wishes to be granted in three

    Convenient answers won't last you through the night
    Dreams intervene to argue what we deny

    Reflections from a traveling mind
    The world is just a mirror, and you're still trying to hide
    (Where do you run to when you don't even know where you are)

    Reflections, the kind I hope to find
    Don't get lost in a fable, go live your life with pride
    (Don't let them stop you from becoming who it is you are)

    Reflections, reflections, reflections from a traveling mind
    (Don't let them stop you from becoming who it is you are)

  11. Purgatory 04:01 Lyrics
    Hello my friend, how have you been?
    It's great to see your vacant expression
    Pull up a chair, have a seat over there
    In the middle of the room all alone on your own
    Indifferently reliving every sin that you have known

    Another soul has lost its way
    Searching for purpose but finding dismay
    Those true to themselves need not roam
    They've made their peace, and have found a home

    Hello again Sir, enjoying your stay?
    I don't care, but I'll ask you anyway
    I bet you're down, but don't despair
    A thousand years is the blink of an eye
    Reality checks in from time to time

    Another soul has lost its way
    Searching for purpose but finding dismay
    Those true to themselves need not roam
    They've made their peace, and have found a home

    Hello friend, oh wait, it's you again?
    Another trip around and you still didn't win?
    Guilty and lame and there's no one to blame
    Fear and anger made your life in vain
    Harmony absent, a soul forever pained

    Another soul has lost its way
    Searching for purpose but finding dismay
    Those true to themselves need not roam
    They've made their peace, and have found a home

    Another soul has lost its way
    Searching for purpose but finding dismay
    Those true to themselves need not roam
    They've made their peace, and have found a home

  12. Music Box 06:31 Lyrics
    This Music Box is all that remains
    Of scattered memories, of battles in vain
    Its song infused with the magic of lore
    Reminding all of what came before
    Content in the realm of human existence
    Its harmony resonates, its lessons transcend us
    Ancient stories of triumph and betrayal
    Most are forgotten, only spoke of in fables

    Music box, to send me back through space and time
    Music box, to a far-off place, a state of mind
    Music box, to make remember what once was
    Music box, to help foresee what is to come

    Notations arranged by the forces unseen
    Of life and death, and those in between
    Ensuring our minds will reflect on the days
    Of love and peace, of sorrow and graves
    The future constructed by events of the past
    An alternate reality of what fate once cast
    That enchanted melody lingers once more
    Fleeting recollections come flooding ashore

    Music box, to send me back through space and time
    Music box, to a far-off place, a state of mind
    Music box, to make remember what once was
    Music box, to help foresee what is to come

    Tiptoeing gently through the ages we've born
    Treading no nearer to the millions ignored
    Swirling truths despite worldly concern
    Mirroring mistakes of generations before
    Sliding slowly to conclusions at hand
    Faulting delicate tendencies of man
    Steady and slow will not conquer this race
    The hours that are lost can not be replaced

    Music box, to send me back through space and time
    Music box, to a far-off place, a state of mind
    Music box, to make remember what once was
    Music box, to help foresee what is to come

    Disregarding the sound in our ears
    That speaks to our hearts, concerning our fears
    Music travels deep to resolve within
    Its presence often awkward, its welcome wearing thin
    This music box can not be repressed
    Its gears keep winding until we find success
    Accepting the message that is extends
    Everything that happens shapes what's next to end

    Music box, to send me back through space and time
    Music box, to a far-off place, a state of mind
    Music box, to make remember what once was
    Music box, to help foresee what is to come
